This is the BEST place to eat in Rocky Point. This small quaint restaurant is located just off the main street in a very nice well lit area. It only has nine tables but each are covered in white table cloths making it a very romantic setting. Also has small curbside outdoor patio for very nice quiet dining. Now for... More

This quickly became our favorite place to go for dinner in Rocky Point. The staff is extremely friendly and the shrimp dishes are out of this world. The place is very quaint and it's kind of small, but we'd like to this way. Be sure to order the coconut shrimp.

We had the seafood extravaganza for two. To start :lobster bisque, fried oysters, clams with butter and garlic, and rosemary flounder. The main course was served on a huge platter and included shrimp cocktail, fish in creamed corn and jalapeno sauce, a whole crab, flounder and shrimp in garlic and butter. Truly amazing and delicious. The margaritas are great too.

This restaurant was highly recommended, and rightly so. The coconut shrimp was outstanding. The jumbo shrimp were FRESH and the mango dipping sauce was outstanding. Pricing was above mid-range, and rightly so. If you are looking for an ocean view, this is not the place. If you are looking for excellent food, don't miss the Blue Marlin, it overlooks a... More

Great location on the Malecon. Upstairs with a view. Great seafood and ask about the Molcajete (basically a lava rock bowl for you Gringos) it was excellent.

We eat here every time we visit Rocky Point. The food and service never disappointment. The wait staff is super friendly and personable. My partner loves the margaritas, and I could eat my weight in marlin tacos.
